I covered the Langston University President’s Scholarship Gala last year, interviewing deep-voiced, good guy Dennis Haysbert. You know, Cerrano from Major League. The All State guy. Yup, him. Good guy.
Langston has great people working there, including Jeff Packham from their public relations department.
